A young man from Brampton has been charged after allegedly posting threats about a planned shooting at a Brampton high school.

On Wednesday (April 12), Peel Regional Police say that investigators found threats made against a Brampton high school that had been made online over social media.

The threat said that there would be a shooting at Jean Augustine Secondary School in the area of Mississauga Road and Bovaird Drive area in Brampton on Thursday at 11:00 a.m., police said.

Police say they identified an 18-year-old suspect from Brampton on Thursday and searched a residence in Brampton where one male was arrested.

Police say Ahmadi Rohulla, 18, of Brampton has been charged with one count of uttering threats. Police did not disclose any additional details about the threats made against the school, or which social media platform was used to make the threat.

He was held for a bail hearing and will appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton at a later date. None of the allegations have been proven in court.

The arrest comes a little more than a month after multiple threats were made against six schools in Mississauga and Brampton, claiming someone will “shoot them up.”

The threats led police to have a noticeable police presence at the targeted schools, and a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were each charged with one count of uttering threats.
